Show Notes

01:55 | WELCOME and INTRO


Dave: Became Vice President of the College Common room and writing a thesis on Latin poetry has taken up much time. The rest of it has gone into exploring various Google products, upgrading to Ubuntu 12.04, and getting a Galaxy Nexus S phone upgrade.

Les: Left the DWP for the harsh reality of the private sector, now sysadmin (‘dog’s body’) and IT mgr.
Assisted in lots of events including Hack to the future, Preston UK (300 kids learning to program) covered by the BBC and the Guardian, UCubed in Manchester, Blackpool LUG and various Hack Spaces.

Robin: Painting the house bit by bit. Appeared on local TV – BBC South Today, in a piece about Hillier Gardens and British Fencing at the Chelsea Flower Show. Doing a bit of sports coaching. Working with Ron Howard and Ralph Fiennes on movies Rush and The Invisible Woman
Upgraded to a ‘new’ phone, Samsung Galaxy S2 – contract ended on the Wildfire and thanks to the S3 for a price drop on the S2.

19:48 | REVIEW: Ubuntu 12.04
A mixed bag of in-place upgrades not working right, firmware issues, sound issues, power management issues and a decidedly rum do with reliability on the desktop.

35.47 | ANNOUNCEMENT: Changes to the Podcast
It’s all change! From next episode, Les and Blackpool LUG will be taking over the Full Circle Podcast as a regular, scheduled show!

Expect more roving reports, events, guests and some lively debate from the Northern quarter.

  1. Thanks for another great episode.

    Good to hear that the podcasts may become more frequent although the I think I will miss the references to Latin poetry.

  2. I saw two people fencing in an exhibit garden at Chelsea Garden Show, on Australian TV, ‘Better Homes and Gardens’.
